Let's go over this again.
Every dollar the government spends has to be taken out of the part of the economy that pays for everything.
"Cost the economy" probably means the part of the economy that is the expense of government paid for by the other part of the economy that pays for everything.
Government is an expense on the economy, not an asset, as it is used in the calculation of the economy.
It goes like this:
The part of the economy that pays for everything is calculated. Then, the government expense on the part of the economy that pays for everything is calculated.
Then, the total economy is ludicrously calculated by adding the part of the economy that pays for everything to the government expense the part of the economy that pays for everything has to pay for.
You have ten dollars. I cost you 2 dollars and fifty cents, of which I give back to you less than 2 dollars, which means you have less than ten dollars. According to the way our government calculates the economy, you have twelve dollars and fifty cents.
Take it up with S&P, their claim is that the shutdown cost the economy 24 billion dollars.

the Surgeon General heads the US Public Health Service, a uniformed service, which provides certain specific functions including Indian health and border quarantine stations...
Instead of creating a government controlled health care system that will eventually eliminate all other health care providers, they should have expanded the Surgeon General's charter to include controlling costs by investigating and prosecuting the rampant fraud in the system.
That would reduce costs, and as a spillover benefit reduce the cost of insurance by eliminating those poor practicioners that are prone to make mistakes in a way a lot better than the frivolous lawsuit method.

Anyone who is interested in improving the health care system would have thought of that before they pushed the idea of putting an obviously incompetent government in charge of health care.

Calling Madonna or any hollywood type please help this Child I Know They’re Out There” Florida Boy Pleads With Church Members To Adopt Him
Just the other day, I was talking to a man who described himself as “as white as he could be.” We were discussing the Kieran Romney adoption. I was explaining that although I have my concerns, I’m generally happy about the Romney family adopting little Kieran because far too often black children are the last children to be adopted. The likelihood of them finding a permanent family becomes even more slim as they get older.

This was news to the white guy.

And though, it’s something I’ve known for quite some time, associating a human face to what often comes off as just a numbers and percentage issue, makes it all the more real and all the more heartbreaking.

In a beautifully written story published on NaplesNews.com , we learn about 15 year old Davion Navar Henry Only, an orphan who’s looking for a home.

The reporter, Lane Degregory of the Tampa Bay Times writes that Davion’s names mean “beloved, brown, ruler of the home and the one and only. He’s memorized all of them. Though one of his names means ruler of the home, Davion told a St. Petersburg church on a Sunday morning in September that he’s never had a home of his own.

“My name is Davion and I’ve been in foster care since I was born… I know God hasn’t given up on me. So I’m not giving up either.”

You probably have trouble with less than exact figures, so I'll give you an exact analogue:

You have ten dollars. I cost you two dollars and fifty cents, of which I give back to you two dollars. Now, you have nine dollars and fifty cents. According to the way our government calculates the economy, you have twelve dollars.

President Bush Signs American Dream Downpayment Act of 2003.
.
What did Bush say when he signed it??????????
.
""One of the biggest hurdles to homeownership is getting money for a down payment. This administration has recognized that, and so today I'm honored to be here to sign a law that will help many low-income buyers to overcome that hurdle, and to achieve an important part of the American Dream.
Last year I set a goal to add 5.5 million new homeowners in America by the end of the decade. That is an attainable goal; that is an essential goal.""
.
Well Bush's Dream came true. Because of this Law change Banks started making loans with:
NO Down Payment required
No Background Checks.
Up to 150% loans of home value.
Up to (wait for it, wait for it) 5 years of deferred principal payments.
.
Now tell us all this was NOT the major part of the home loan collapse.
Since you are ignorant of today's lesson, let's review some US history. You may want to take notes.

Here is a link to the Democrats negotiating with Republicans in 2003 for no effective oversight of their CRA program:

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1222905...

(If you want, you can earn extra credit for posting the outright lies from Barney Frank and Maxine Waters in this link.)

2003 was also the year Democrats supported the war in Iraq.

Now, why would the Democrats support the war in Iraq?
Because they had a deal with the Republicans to give them no effective oversight of their Marxist CRA program?

When did the Democrats and their lapdog media turn against the war in Iraq?
After there was nothing more the Republicans could give them?

When did the Democrats take over complete oversight of the financial institutions that:
1) Gave so much money to Obama in bribes, it was only Christopher Dodd in the entire Congress they gave more money to; and
2) Collapsed the economy after two years of oversight by Christopher Dodd, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse.

Class dismissed.

When the government doesn't spend money yet still collets taxes, it just deprives the economy of that put back. It doesn't stop the "take out " part.
I have piles of horse crap in my pasture that are smsarter that you.
My God, get a freakin grip.
So, what you're saying is, if the government took all the money out of the economy, we'd have a stronger economy?
Just how nuts are you?

Here's how the real world works:

Obama didn't plan anything. He's nothing more than a cardboard cutout commercial sign to make it look like someone's actually president. Vallerie Jarrett makes all the decisions. Obama's sole function is to read prescripted speeches on a teleprompter and sign documents when he's ordered to sign them.
Obama has never done anything in his entire life. He didn't start doing something when he moved into the White House, moron. He just continued to do what he's done his entire life, whatever he's ordered to do so he can continue to ride in the gold seat on the government gravy train.

But but but tea party caucus was only reintroducing "it's brand."

And Rafael Cruz claims that John McCain was bombing his own troops Hah, LMAO__that was cruel because McCain actually did that once. But to McCain's credit he's remaining true to the bulk of the nation's Republicans. The smart and nice ones LOL.
